As always, the convention offered a lot of fanfare and excitement mixed with tons of useful knowledge from the over 800 sessions. For the most part we are convinced that the Social Enterprise is gaining a significant amount of traction, and more and more companies are looking for ways to move their legacy systems from on-premise to the cloud.

The Technical Keynote is on Tuesday this year. Rohit is VP Products, Jeetu is CSO and CMO. This post will present our notes and thoughts on the presentation. The presentation was very consistent presentation with Rick’s Keynote yesterday.
With Rick Devenuti’s keynote focused on solutions, I had an interesting conversation over breakfast with some IIG consultants that was worth a post. Skipping the VMWare Keynote so I had some time to think it through.
TSG will be holding our 5th annual client briefing on June 7th, at the University of Chicago Gleacher Center from 9 am to 5 pm. The briefing focuses on TSG facilitation of specific Documentum topics allowing interaction between clients to discuss experience, lessons learned and best practices. Last year’s briefing included:
- Introductions – sharing “What I would like to learn today”

This year’s attendees will be polled in Mid-May to finalize this year’s agenda. We are pleased to announce that James Watson PhD from Doculabs will be providing a keynote presentation on their thoughts in regards to Documentum and EMC. Based on initial client feedback, other topics could include:
- Mobile Strategy and TSG Offerings
- Cloud Thoughts and Strategy
- D2/XCP/Webtop/HPI Review and Discussions

While the briefing is mostly limited to TSG clients, we do invite selective companies that we feel can add to the discussion. If you are interested in attending the briefing, please contact us at email@example.com.
